The rules for Star Wars: Force Collection's card management might be a little different than you're used to, but it's not overly complicated. The first and most important thing to note is that you cannot organize your formations from the Cards tab. The easiest way to access this option is to go through the Menu tab in the top left corner of the screen.
Formations are split into two groups: Offense and Defense. Each one can be comprised of a different set of cards. Or the same, it's up to you.
When you set up your formations, make sure to keep an eye on the total cost in the bottom right. This is your limit. Each card you assign has a base cost associated with it, so make a note of it when you're considering adding it to the grid.
Another thing to consider is dimensions. Vehicles tend to take up more than a single square and can span horizontally and/or vertically.
Range is yet another consideration. Each card will have one of three range values: Short (one square ahead), Medium (3 squares), and Long (9 squares). There's no real optimal distance as a Medium range card does just as much damage from 3 squares as it does at 1, but they can attack from behind another card. So, you know, keep that in mind.
The most important aspects of card management (aside from formations, of course) are enhancements and evolutions. Both options can significantly improve your cards and give you a major edge in battle.
Enhance allows you to pay to upgrade a card, either by using a specific number of credits per level or a smaller (but still specific) amount of crystals. The values go up with each level, too, so unless you've stockpiled a ton of cash, don't expect to max out a card all at once.
Evolution will merge two of the same card to create a stronger version with larger amounts of attack power, defense, health, and evasion. It's important to note that you need two of the exact same card to evolve, so in order to reach the ultimate third stage you'll need four, total (A + A = B, A + A = B again, then B + B = C). Each iteration can also be enhanced along the way to further boost the final card's values.
